Hi Mohammad,

Thanks for the article on sub reports. They're often great to use and can get report developers out of sticky positions. I would be careful about showing subreports for situations that can be address with groupings though... Sub Reports, especially dropped into detailed sections, can have a significant impact on performance. Many developers use them to mash data together where links in the database don't exist or to position the data more with more flexibility. Just thought I would comment.
